Minuendo: Introducing the newest kind of earplugs for musicians

Feb 24, 2021 | 7 min read

Why your hearing is important

Hearing is one of our most important senses. Sound helps us appreciate our surroundings, form meaningful memories and, of course, enjoy music. Whether it is the sound of birds chirping in the background, rain pattering on the windowsill or the annoying noise of early-morning traffic, our hearing has the unique ability to shape our moods and emotions. This is why protecting it is so important.

Hearing is especially crucial for musicians… being able to listen critically to music or tell if you’ve improved is entirely dependent on your hearing. For Team Soundbrenner, playing music on the stereo on a Friday afternoon also means it’s time to celebrate a successful week.

Signs of hearing loss

  • Muffled speech and sounds
  • Needing to turn up the volume on the television and radio
  • Misunderstanding words and asking people to repeat their sentences again.
  • Being unable to hear specific frequencies within the normal range of human hearing

If you think you currently suffer from hearing loss, you can take the following online test to find out here.

Protect your ears with Minuendo

Our latest partner product, Minuendo lossless earplugs, are the world’s only earplugs with variable passive high fidelity filters, with stepless manual adjustments from 7-25dB.

With Minuendo you can listen to natural sound and have adjustable attenuation all within an elegantly designed earbud.


Stepless adjustments

Always be in control of the loudness of the noise around you from -7dB during quiet practice sessions and gigs, to –25dB if you’re on the front row of a gig or in an industrial area.

Hi-Fi filter

Eliminates unnecessary noise and distortion as approved by audio engineers.

Designed and manufactured by a team of audio experts in Norway, these earplugs can be used in many applications that require precise noise reduction without impacting the quality of the sound. Use them at rehearsals, recording sessions, concerts and more.

Natural flat frequency

Minuendo is able to achieve a frequency response on par with custom moulded ear plugs with their patented membrane technology at half the price. Quality never decreases, only volume.

No electronics or battery needed

There are no electronics so you never have to worry about charging them and they have a nifty magnetic attachment so you’ll never lose them.

How is it better than other earplugs?

Traditional ear plugs such as generic orange foam plugs or even more premium earplugs will completely block out the sound, meaning whilst you are protecting your ears, you’re missing out on the audio around you. 

More expensive solutions such as moulded earplugs only allow one dB setting at a time, usually 7, 15 or 30dB, meaning if your practice or gig is too loud or too quiet, it’s going to ruin the experience, or you’ll always have to have additional filters on you to swap and change. 

Moulded ear plugs also have other disadvantages. For example, singing, chewing or other jaw movements often introduce leak and thereby audible and annoying changes in sound. 

Minuendo earplugs come with 11 different sets of ear tips so you can find the perfect fit without having to worry about the quality of audio around you. 

Don’t compromise on your hearing –  get your Minuendo earplugs today for $159 on our store.
